About Us - Learner Success

THE CURRENT CONTEXT 
 

Communication with our families is important and we want to work to improve this in our school community. Specifically, we want our parents and caregivers to know what their children are learning and to be able to find out from our school through a variety of ways.

At Lord Kelvin, community connection has always been a key component to our daily functioning.  This year, we are shifting towards improving how we communicate with families on how their children are progressing in school. 

GOAL:  WHAT WE HOPE TO ACHIEVE 
 Our Goal:  Improve communication with families about student learning.  

We will strive to ensure our parents:  

  • feel connected to their child(ren)’s learning
  • feel welcome discussing the learning with teachers 
  • know what their child(ren) are doing at school
  • to understand their child(ren)’s progress
PLAN:  THE STEPS WE WILL TAKE 
Key Results  

  How will we create a sense of connectedness? 

  • Meet the Teacher Conferences in September
  • Three-Way Conferences (student, parent/caregiver, teacher) in April
  • communication from the classroom to the home highlighting what is happening in classrooms (‘class news’, Sway messages, etc)
  • Foster healthy communication between teacher and families using email, face-to-face, and other means
SUCCESS INDICATORS:  HOW WE WILL KNOW THAT OUR ACTIONS ARE HAVING THE DESIRED IMPACT 
 

  • high participation rate in conferences
  • parent and caregiver comments and response to class communication to homes
COMMUNICATION:  HOW WE WILL SHARE OUR LEARNING JOURNEY WITH OUR COMMUNITY
